Arsenal legend Ian Wright has bemoaned manager Arsene Wenger for “destroying” Alexander Lacazette’s confidence.
Lacazette has recently been outcasted by new signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and was left on the bench as the former Borussia Dortmund striker netted in their last match in a 5-1 win at home to Everton.
Lacazette has also scored just once in his last 12 games for the Gunners.
He told BBC Radio 5 live: “He (Lacazette) has played well in games, he has scored goals, but he has been taken off.
“Wenger has destroyed Lacazette’s confidence”.
The French international has scored 9 times so far in the Premier League this season since his £46.5 million move from Lyon in the summer.
